This is the point where I profess my unabashed and total love for you and your opera-finding genius.
I LOVE this production. ‘nuff said
Teresa Stratas sings “They are always with me” in John Corigliano’s The Ghosts of Versailles, in the world premiere production at the Metropolitan Opera.
This is some unbelievable performing. This is not easy music, but she manages to navigate it beautifully, all the time nailing the bipolar-ness of the aria. Watch and learn.
I love this aria and I love Stratas singing it. It gives me the chills.
I ADORE this opera.
I WAS THERE TODAY!!!!

New York Opera Exchange, a relatively new opera company based in New York City, presented Don Giovanni as their full production of the 2012-2013 season. The brutally alluring set, comprised simply of a black wall with a bleeding red “VIVA la LIBERTÀ” in the upper left corner, worked well for this down-to-earth 1960s version of Mozart’s classic opera. Director Jennifer Shorstein used her limited space well, moving furniture into and out of the space as needed. She also highlighted the stark red text by creating poignant tableaus with her singers in front of it.
My review of NY Opera Exchange’s Don Giovanni is out! :D
